A Variety of Chocolaty Culinary Experience Celebrated At Le Meridien

A day all about chocolates is a day all about happiness. Commemorating special days is all about celebrating the essence of it which otherwise gets mixed in the daily hustles.

The Chocolate Soiree had a wonderful display of chocolates. There were different varieties experimented with different flavours. While the chocolates had a wide range from fruity flavours, nuts, and liquor chocolates, the cakes on display were rather mainstream in terms of flavors as well in shape. Speaking of display, the presentation of the dishes could have been a little better. A few of the chocolate innovations did not have a name card to be identified with and they were all a little too closely spread, a little congested in presentation.

Speaking exclusively with india.com, Chef Vivek elaborated on the process of curating the menu. He said, “Everyone comes with their own ideas, we do trials, keep an eye on what’s happening around, what we can blend and finally present to our head chef who further enhances it.” It is a month’s hard work and creative exercise of brainstorming and experimenting with flavours. It took almost 6-8 days to complete the dishes on the menu.

The hotel has a special chocolate room designated for chocolates as it requires a certain temperature to be maintained under. Weather conditions also have an impact on the procedure of making such delicacies. The chef further said that it takes almost 7-8 days to carve the chocolates to get the desired shapes and give some time to settle on the molds and acquire the structure thus planned.

When we think about a celebration of chocolates, we look forward to varieties that would not have imagined could exist and the soiree lacked a bit of it. There is no doubt that the soiree had a good range and well-experimented flavors but maybe some chocolates mixed with spices or some other ingredients that are not too commonly found could have been explored. More variety of flavors would have enhanced the exquisite menu a little more.

The team at Le Meridien had molded chocolate into intricate and unique shapes like – a chocolate chess board, a chocolate piano, high heels chocolate, cakes, flavoured macarons, chocolate lollipops and so much more.

Apart from the variety of chocolate-based delicacies that were offered, there was a live counter where one could DIY Profiteroles. I enjoyed the live counter because I got to choose just the right amount of chocolate I relish.

high heels

Well, it was a delicious cuisine with some really intriguing innovations in place nonetheless, in terms of presentation, a little more work could have been done. Also, some of these shapes were too good to look at but made me wonder, how do I take a bite from such a big piece? Barring these few things, it was overall a good chocolaty experience at the innovative Chocolate Soiree.
